That said, a meal here is not going to be bad and service is still excellent. The restaurant is very small, so book... read more

This was the first and last time we will eat at Jitlada, the food was greasy and bland. Thai food is usually our absolute favourite, but we thought the food was disgusting, drinks were served warm and service was slow. Really disappointing, we thought we would try somewhere local but will stick with the Bangkok Lounge in Harpenden from now... More

This arrived over the course of about 20 minutes which meant we couldn't all eat together. One person's food was totally wrong so had to wait for the correct meal to be... More

My wife used this restaurant when the previous owners had it, and I have been once before. She felt it wasn't as good as it used to be but I loved it. I thought the food and service were very good and would def go back again. Will def visit after the refurb.

I just got a quick take-away as i was craving a green thai chicken curry which was delicious!! It was very quick (only 10 minutes from time of calling). Reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly when i collected the food.

Another visit to Jitlada and it was a fab experience yet again. We hadn't booked and it was a Saturday night but we were surprised that there was tables. We were slightly worried as previously booking a table here in advance was the only way you could eat here... We needn't have worried! The food was fantastic, the sharing platters... More
